    CU is not very good. They beat a bad KU team. To say they are going to keep winning is a bad prediction. KSU isn’t very good, either. I’m still scratching my head over that one. I was there to witness it and I can’t quite explain it. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if CU beats us on Saturday.

    The Big 12 North is not good. It will take a couple weeks for the yipping media idiots to swallow their pride and realize that the blanket statement of “KU/NU/Mizzou are heads and above everything else in the North” is wrong. KU is one overthrown pass from being winless in the division. Nebraska has no heart. Mizzou looks bad. I’m with Greg… enjoy the games, but don’t think they mean much out side of our little area.

    As a KU grad, I was at the CU game in Boulder. CU is a good team with a very strong d-line and new life with the young QB. KU’s defense got pressure on him, but we couldn’t tackle him, which was especially disappointing considering they’ve seen Reesing do that in practice for 4 years.

    The north is wide open which means two things: mediocre bowl games for many north teams; and each week will be very interesting. Is that so bad?

    I’m a cats fan, and alum. Glad we won, needed it. No clue what to expect for the rest of the season. Doesn’t matter.

    KU is NOT bad. Not by a stretch.

    I’d place bets on them taking the north.. Reesing is a legit BA, especially combined with Meir and Briscoe. Their defense has really been sucking it up. I remember multiple attempts at tackling vs. CU that only amounted pushing the ball carrier in the back. Come on.

    Seems to me that since the start of the Big 12, the northern schools are “Just there” in the eyes and minds of the people running the confrence.

    In the old Big 8, it use to be KU/MU/K-State in football and basketball. It use to be CU/NU. Hell the biggest football game of the year used to be NU/OU.

    Now, it’s all about Texas/OU TU/TTU OU/OSU. The big 12 killed off the OU/KU game.

    It just seems like the northern schools are in the Big 12 without reaping the benifits that all the southern schools are getting.

    Sorry I mean the Big 12 killed off the OU/NU game.

    Johnny U,
    My family and I were on a Frontier flight Sunday morning in Denver about 10:30 AM Denver time and shared it with a number of KU fans flying back to KC from the game. Any chance you were on that bird? We sat in row one and I think our 12-year-old got a bit tipsy from the strong scent of alcohol seepage from the boarding Hawk fans.

    Anything can happen. That’s why they play the game. C-List bowl games for the northers may get some fans excited but they are the equivalent of a perfect attendance trophy. If your life’s highlight is gonna be showing your kids and grandkids pictures from the Super Auto Fixer Upper Bowl you’re pretty bad off. Unless there is a huge paradigm shift the South owns the Big 12 for a long time. I’ve talked to 3 kids that have had recruiting visits to north and south schools and there is no comparison in what they offer. The south schools have hotter chicks, better dorms, better food, better training facilities and sheepskins with more street cred. Not to mention wealthy alum ready and willing to help with a JOB when your career is over. The only advantage the north has it that it will have more players stay for 4 years instead of splitting early for the NFL. Even then I’ll take raw talent motivated by a big payday over an experienced kid getting ready to be a white collar stiff.

    I think last weekend shows that the North is not very good. I won’t be surprised by the outcomes of any games featuring North vs. North teams. Seriously, would anybody be shocked if Iowa State beat Nebraska this weekend? I wouldn’t, they are a missed wide open WR from beating KU and blocked extra point from being in OT with K-State.

    Look, Nebraska’s offense is bad, KU is a three man show with Reesing, Briscoe and Meier, MU has a hurt QB and K-State has less talent than all three of those schools…but I think all of them could beat each other on the right day and I wouldn’t be surprised if the North champ was 4-4 in league play.

    I’m a K-State fan and I’m scared for this weekend. The last time I remember the fans being this excited, the Cats had just won in Austin two years ago and every one thought Prince had the team on the right track. Well, needless to say, KU came to town and won the next weekend and it was all downhill from there. Point is, it’s a long season and one week doesn’t mean your program is back. I’d be happy if K-State finished 6-6 this year with the talent they have.

    Smartman, you’re right. The Big 12 South has turned into the SEC Southwest. Large staduims, larger budgets and a win at any cost, bigger is better, we’re better then you mind set.

    The Big 12 North on the other hand is still in the old Big 8 mind set.

    I still can’t find any KState fans that are making bold statements that our football program is back. The only idiots doing that in this town are, in order of volume, Nebraska, Missouri, and Kansas. We in the Purple Nation are enjoying this season for what it is — righting the ship, restoring a system of accountability on and off the field, and watching Nubbers, Tiggers, and Squawks slam into brink walls after a non-con spent patting themselves on the back.

    Smartman cuts to the chase- better job opportunities, better grub, and most importantly, the universal motivator, poontang. Taco Tuesday in Texas, everyday. Iowa State grads can count on big-assed wives, scalloped corn, and huge career oportunities at Kum ‘n Go.

    I won’t write off the Hawks just yet – they basically handed CU 14 points by turning it over twice inside their own 5. They showed their toughness by not quitting and taking the lead later after being down by 21 points.I think the fat man will have them ready to play OU on Saturday, especially the defense. This loss may be the best thing for this team – they seemed to overlook teams like S. Miss, ISU and CU – they will NOT overlook OU.

    The parity in the Big 12 north only makes this college football season that more exciting (assuming you’re a fan of college football). While the caliber of play has proven to not be at the same level as the teams in the south, it will still be a fun journey to see who ends up on top in the north.

    I wonder if we were to take an all-star team of north players and pit them against the south champion, instead of the conventional big 12 championship game, if the north team would still get throttled?

    Collective Noses. I like the way you think! How about an All Star team from both the North and South play each other. I’m sure there’s a network and sponsors that would pay up for that. I’d actually like the North’s chances in that match up. I think when you take the best 53 from each division it’s gonna be a lot more balanced.

    It’s cute how the Wildcat fans are now excited about their hopes for the year. I see NO WAY they beat KU, MU or Nebraska. If they do, good for them and then they’ll deserve to be excited.

    KU’s loss was so devastating ’cause of how they spotted Colorado 14 points early. It reminded me a bit of the KU/MU Arrowhead game two years ago, when Reesing was off early then came STORMING back and nearly pulled off a comeback.

    The ONLY criticism I could give Reesing is that many games it takes him a quarter to get in gear. But when he gets in gear…which he always does…my god is he amazing. If not for the very questionable OPI, people would be heaping praises at how Reesing was able to bring KU back from a 3 TD deficit on the road.

    My thoughts on KU:

    The late Colorado drive was disheartening, but otherwise, KU’s defense DID look improved. I think that improvement will continue. If KU wins Saturday against Oklahoma, KU will be 6-1, as most predicted. A KU victory would be a HUGE confidence boost to the team, and I predict would propel them to the Big 12 North title. A KU loss this weekend will eliminate Nebraska’s only true competition to win the North.
